I have to say I absolutely adore Jackie French’s Animal series and Shark Attack does not disappoint!
This time Leo and Mozz are on an adventure to rescue the sharks. An old mining dam has collapsed and a grey nurse shark colony is under attack. Will Leo and Mozz be able to save the day this time?
The home-made jet ‘SkyTiger’ gets into trouble whilst underwater with the sharks, even Allan Nesbit Kirk the guinea pig knows that they are in deep trouble this time. They are running out of air fast, deep within the waters with the sharks surrounding them. Leo tells Mozz ‘When we run out of air will you promise me something? Open the door and try and get out.’ However Mozz is horrified at the suggestion as she knows her fate will be with the sharks outside circling. Begrudgingly she agrees. Will they survive? Can they save the sharks or are they doomed forever in a watery grave or worse a shark’s belly?
The characters in this series come alive, their dialogue is down to earth and the fast pace of the adventure stories makes one hold their breath in anticipation!
‘Shark Attack’ is another wonderfully crafted adventure by Jackie French. Suspense, excitement and satisfaction. It would have to be one of my favourites of the series so far. I’d give this adventure tale 4****.
